As per the comment on my previous entry the issue of the Kensington laptop lock being pickable is actually an old one. I admit that I never realised this as it was only highlighted to me just over a week ago.
What I don't understand is why you would upgrade a perfectly good and working laptop lock? I checked with Kensington and found that they have know about the issue for THREE years and never issued a product recall. In the email conversation I have had with them they would not answer why they never issued a recall which is pretty bad going for a company that makes security devices.
Overall the lesson appears to be one of caution with laptop locks because they are not as secure as you may think.
